Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


First full day so far....

So, I told you in my earlier post that I might post again today.  Well, I'm posting!  I wanted to tell you about my day up until now.  I ate leftover pizza this morning and had three cups of coffee!  My friend and I sat on the balcony for a while just enjoying the view.  I decided after a bit to go out.  He wasn't ready to go yet, so I went out and walked.  I went to Big Lots, Dollar General, and several different beachwear stores.  All are having good end of the season sales.  I got two NICE t-shirts in the Bargain Beachwear (My favorite beachwear shops) for $10!  I thought that was a great deal.  One is the an exact match to one I got in June but in a different color.  It's red.  The other shirt I got today is blue.  Both are pretty.  

I also found myself a really nice heavy duty coffee mug in another beachwear store.  I can't remember which one at the moment. I always bring my bestie a present from the beach that is something to do with turtles.  It's getting harder and harder to find something different to carry her.  I found something though.  I won't mention it in case she reads this. :p

In that store, I found a pink long tank that I bought half off of the sale price, I think I paid $4 for it  I will use it as a beach cover up and it can also be a good workout shirt for at home.  I went in soooo many beachwear shops.  It's a nice diversion and it's usually nice and cool in them!

I came back here and I have my phone charging.  It went down to 11% while I was out. Oops!  I forgot that it wasn't fully charged when I left the room.  It's charging now and hopefully it will be pretty close to full when we go out tonight.  I am not sure where exactly we are going.  He mentioned perhaps the Dead Dog Saloon as we both love it.  We had planned to do that tomorrow night, but neither of us like the guy who is performing tomorrow night.  They have live music at the restaurant.

So, I may update again later tonight and I may just do it tomorrow. We'll see.  OH! I did my workouts this afternoon.  It was cardio.  WAH!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL  I did them though.  After I post this, I'm going to do my French lesson with Duolingo and then wait to see what we are going to do tonight.  I took a picture with Photobooth of the ocean. I don't think it will look as good as a picture from my phone, but I'll share it here:

Okay, not great, but it will do for now. :p


Goodness!

So, I loaded my lawn mower up in my car today.  That was not fun.  It's not too horribly heavy, but it's awkward.  I filled it with gas before I did so I didn't run out.  I went over to my friend's house.  The one that has been sick.  I mowed his lawn for him.  I know he still isn't feeling well, so I wanted to help him out.  I did his entire lawn.  I then came home and did my front lawn and the driveway around where my car usually sits.  I parked it elsewhere and moved it back afterwards.  I came in and cooled down and then did my workouts. It was ab day so that was fun.  Yikes! LOL!  I got those done and then relaxed a bit before fixing some lunch.  Lunch was delicious.  

I went out and spent some time on my front porch.  It was feeling nice outside today.  A friend called later and asked if I wanted to ride with her to have some keys made.  I did.  She just got a jeep and she drove that.  I did NOT like it. So uncomfortable.  Ugh!  I got a serious headache from the bumpiness and the smell from the exhaust.  BLEAH!  I was happy to get home!

Now, I'm going to finish this and then do my French lesson at Duolingo and then probably play Scrabble on my iPod touch.  I love word games! 


Hello!

So I actually had the time today to sit down and do a real post.  I've been pretty busy today, but I wanted to post here.  I am drying my hair at the moment, so it seemed the perfect time to do a good blog post.  It is Sunday so that means bed linen day.  I've already gotten that washed and back on the bed.  I did another smaller load of laundry too.  I've put that away.  I organized one of my cabinets and did some other cleaning.  

My workouts today were abs.  I know I'll be feeling that tomorrow!  Hopefully I'll get to walk tomorrow evening.  I need to sit down and write pen pal letters tomorrow too.  I meant to do that today and time just got away from me.  I have several more things I need to do before bed, so I won't get those done tonight.  

Tomorrow I will be really busy as I'll have some money.  I plan to go and get gas in my car and get some groceries and other things that I need.  I hope to do that before workout time.  I'll do those and then have lunch.  I am hoping that my friend and I walk after that.  It will definitely be great to have good food in the house and gas in my car.  I need to run and get a few things while I'm out, too.  Hopefully I'll be able to get everything done that I need to get done tomorrow.

I will also try to come and make a decent post here.  I am going to finish drying my hair while doing my daily French lesson.  I've been using Duolingo to learn French.  I learned it in high school, but that was a looooong time ago!  I really wanted to learn Japanese, but it doesn't offer it.  Hopefully one day!  So far, I've been using Duolingo for a little over a month now.  I've been using it everyday and I'm only about 6% fluent in French, but the learning is fun!
